A proposed collective action citing alleged violations of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the Ohio Minimum Fair Wage Act (OMFWA) claims defendant Ernie Green Industries, Inc. failed to pay workers mandatory minimum and overtime wages. The plaintiff, who worked for the defendant from November 2012 through November 2016, alleges she and similarly situated hourly employees frequently worked more than 40 hours per week without time-and-a-half hourly overtime compensation. Specifically, the lawsuit claims the defendant miscalculated employees’ overtime pay by failing to include bonuses in addition to the workers’ regular rates of pay.
